Tidbits of Matt's Life

This is where I post my incoherent ramblings. It's where I post the coherent ones, too!

[sticky post] List of my userpics by order added @ 01:48 pm

Right now I am annoyingly: productive
Soundtrack: I typed some of my userpic keywords into Dunc's Algomusic IIIb to see what randomized songs I'd get

As I've mentioned a while back, I plan on replacing some of my userpics with more legible versions. (even though I've procrastinated that for probably at least a year now...)

Since I knew that doing that will cause me to lose track of what order I added my userpics, I kept a list of my userpics in my profile in order added - but I'm starting to run out of room on my profile now, so I moved it here and reformatted it into a table that hopefully looks better than the old layout.

Note that this excludes the following:
- Old versions of these userpics
- Alternate versions of some of these that I made to protest SOPA/PIPA/ACTA/etc. a few years ago

Here they are!Collapse )

Glossary of Matt1993isms @ 09:03 pm

Right now I am annoyingly: tired tired
Soundtrack: Dido - Sand in My Shoes

I finally got around to updating this glossary and moving it to a sticky post so that it wouldn't clutter up my profile and I could have LJ-cuts to jump to certain sections!

Although the whole point of these multiple LJ-cuts is for ease of navigation (i.e. if I reference a Matt1993ism in the definition of a Matt1993ism in a different section, I'd link to the proper section), I haven't had the time to actually go through and add all these links, so stay tuned for that. I also thought about adding artwork for certain entries *cough*/crazymegavideo/*cough*, so stay tuned for that too. :)

As I said in the old glossary, if you spot a Matt1993ism I used that I haven't defined here, or if FoxReplace messes up the "pucker up because it's time for lunch" entry again, etc., please let me know :)

EDIT: Added some more Matt1993isms and tags, but still need to add the links and artwork. I'm also pretty sure there was another Matt1993ism that I still forgot to add...

Super Mario Odyssey Minus Mario @ 08:57 pm

Right now I am annoyingly: amused amused
Soundtrack: this (the music sounds amazing even when it's skipping any scene where Mario appears!)

You've probably heard of Garfield Minus Garfield - well, here's Mario Minus Mario!



 

February 10th, 2017

About time! @ 09:00 pm

Soundtrack: Super Smash Bros. 3DS/Wii U soundtrack - All-Star Rest Area

All of the broken images in entries I posted in 2009 (except one that never showed up to begin with) have finally been restored to their former glory! I think.

Only took me a combined total of TWO YEARS to get around to it and to finish it, and that was just for 2009...
 

February 9th, 2017

I AM THE ENYA OF MOVIE VIEWING. @ 10:14 pm

Right now I am annoyingly: infinitesimally more accomplished
Soundtrack: Super Mario Maker soundtrack - SMB Airship theme (yeah, now I pretty much think of it as the official theme song of reading/seeing stuff I feel like I should've seen all along but didn't)

December 25, 2009: Got Garfield's Fun Fest DVD as a Christmas present. For the record, by then I'd seen the other two 3D Garfield movies (Garfield Gets Real and Garfield's Pet Force, the latter of which actually came out after Garfield's Fun Fest I think.)

February 9, 2017: Finally actually watched it over seven years later!

And enjoyed it as much as I thought I would, but still... SEVEN YEARS.

And I kind of know why I put it off in the first place (apparently the Christmas present from that year that I was the most excited about it was New Super Mario Bros. Wii, and that was also the era when I was trying to work as hard as I could - sometimes - on a redesign for Ours Will You 1-Up that I never finished), but... how did that turn into a seven-year-and-two-month-long delay?! That's even longer than the delay before Enya finally released Dark Sky Island! And longer than how long Marzipan was out and about!

Valentine's Day quizzes @ 03:09 pm

Right now I am annoyingly: nervous nervous

With Valentine's Day coming up, I decided to post these quiz results now:


Valentine's Day and/or love quizzesCollapse )


Also, since some of you probably don't know this about me yet: Even though I'm single, I love Valentine's Day! And I love Valentine's Day candy and I think romance can be so sweet. (I happen to have a userpic with half of a candy heart in it, so I know that kind of makes it look like I was in a bad breakup or something, but no, I've never been in a relationship at all - I just made the userpic so I could reference a backwards lyric.) Anyway, my point is, the only thing that makes me depressed on Valentine's Day is people complaining about how much they hate Valentine's Day. It always makes me feel like they'll hate me for liking Valentine's Day... :(

So if you're planning on posting some sort of rant about how you hate Valentine's Day and how anyone who likes it is clearly delusional, etc... go ahead, but would you mind putting it under a LJ-cut or having a special tag for it so I can easily skip it? Please? :)

When did the distant future officially begin? @ 01:27 pm

Right now I am annoyingly: nostalgic nostalgic

Since certain past years and dates (especially starting with 2015) sometimes still sound futuristic to me when I think about them, I thought I'd make a poll about it.

Poll #2062591 Forwards to the Future

I think my 1, 9, 2, and 0 keys want a break now. :)

(I say that right before I have to type all those years one more time for the tags on this entry...)

Some more quizzes revisited over seven years later @ 05:06 pm

Right now I am annoyingly: nostalgic nostalgic

http://matt1993.livejournal.com/12541.html
The first time I took that quiz, it said I had an 80% chance of surviving a T-Rex attack. Now it's:

You'd have a 66% chance of surviving
QuizGalaxy.com
You have an above average chance of surviving a T-Rex attack. You are able to recognize what the real dangers are as opposed to the imaginary ones. Go team!

Less than before, but it's still a lot more than what I feel my actual chance of surviving would be.


http://matt1993.livejournal.com/13234.html
My first date faux pas is still "Talking about your ex!" which still doesn't quite make sense because I've still always been single in the years since I took this quiz. I do talk about the past in general a lot, though...

(And yes, instead of just saying "Lies!" in that old entry, I put in a random backwards lyric that happened to have the word "lies" in it. I was weird back then. ;) )

http://matt1993.livejournal.com/13507.html
My epitaph this time is:

Matt
Don't mess with the Mafia

That was one of those all-you-have-to-do-is-enter-your-name quizzes, so of course it's a different result now.

Wordle Year in Review 2016 @ 04:28 pm

Right now I am annoyingly: accomplished, finally
Soundtrack: Super Mario Maker - SMW Airship

Wordle Year in Review 2016


It took a lot longer than usual for me to get around to it this time, but I finally did it!

---

Go to Wordle and...

1) Paste in all entries you posted in January 2016 and make a Wordle configured any way you like
2) Paste in all entries you posted in February 2016 and make another Wordle configured any way you like
...
12) Paste in all entries you posted in December 2016 and make another Wordle configured any way you like
13) Make a Wordle out of your entries from ALL months of 2016, configured any way you like

Then post all of these Wordles to your LiveJournal!


You may do steps 1 - 12 only or step 13 only if you prefer.

It's up to you if you include subject lines, comments, community entries, friends-only entries, music tags, location tags, etc., and it's up to you whether you post your Wordles in a public or friends-only entry. Anything else I didn't think of is probably optional as well.

---


This time around, there was an additional complication involving an entry I actually wrote in May 2016, but listed as January 2015 to mess with everyone's heads, including mine. (which, like a lot of my entries, will probably make no sense whatsoever if you haven't read a lot of my entries from November 2014 [at the LATEST] to May 2016... but if you're feeling lucky, go ahead and read it without context! :P )

Anyway, the complication is: does that entry count as January 2015 or May 2016? So some Wordles have two different versions, one listed as being from 2015 or 2016 and one listed as being from "2015B" or "2016B". Without the B, it means the retroactive entry counts as the month it was actually written: May 2016. With the B, it means the retroactive entry counts as January 2015. (And yes, this means I'm retroactively adding two more Wordles to the PREVIOUS year in review!... but to reduce confusion, I'm not actually putting them in that entry; I'm just putting them here.)
